God Equips Your Every Need…

 

Dear friend…

 

I see your fear.  I know your pain.

I have lived in that place.

Overwhelmed.

Questioning…

How will I make it through?

You are tired. So tired.

Weary from it all.

Nothing left.

Empty.

 

You look at your burdens and cry.  You are left with the aches of your soul.  Another fight to conquer.  Another hill to climb.

 

How?

 

Do you know you are equipped?  He places strength in every turn.

He opens hearts.  And heals wounds.  He ministers hope.

And reveals His power, when you are without.

God equips your every need.

 

He lights your courage

He prepares your way

He carries you through

Each trying day.

 

He walks beside

Your faltering gait

Please know dear friend…

He holds your fate.

 

His plan is placed.

He trusts your heart.

He knows your faith.

He will not part…

 

Hold on.

 

You may not know

You may not see

You may not feel

Him there with thee.

 

Oh trust my friend!

He stands for you.

He shines His light

In darkness too.

 

He’s there beside

Your struggling ways

His hand is on

All your days.

 

Breathe in fresh hope

You will succeed

He has equipped

Your every need.

God Equips Your Every Need

      That is exactly what I intended in these words! Thank you for your confirmation, affirmation and total support… I know there are many who suffer more during this season for various reasons. I know that some wake to feel these feelings every day. My heart breaks for them. I pray this encourages them.

      Oh yes, remembering and trusting. Even when we don’t feel it or believe it. Trusting that He will provide all we need to survive, whatever dark path we have entered.

So much relief to know that I am not alone and that He is right beside me helping me through. It was a rough week but I have come out stronger than I went in. Thanks to friends like you.

    I really needed this. Interestingly, you posted this on my birthday. It was a rough birthday for me because it was the eve of my twin girls first birthdays. But two days later, one of them died. And that one year anniversary was yesterday. And I appreciate you stopping by my blog and encouraging me, and I’m so glad I came back and read these words. I do believe in the power of prayer, and I can feel myself being lifted up. Thank you for reminding me WHO is always taking care of me.

      OH I am so sorry you had such a rough birthday. I can’t believe how close it is to your twins’ birthday and your tragic loss as well. Interestingly, I felt compelled to write and post this as I had such a burden to express this message. I am so glad it encouraged you Alexa. May it give you some peace to know WHO is taking care of you and your angel…

      Thank you so much. Yes… trusting that He will provide our every need is the only thing that gets me through difficult days. My prayer is that those suffering such a loss today are reminded of this Truth as well.

    Beautiful. Remembering to lean on Him is tough for me, but it makes all the difference. Thanks for the reminder so beautifully said.

    Happy Sharefest. I hope you have a lovely weekend.

      Thank you Robin! Yes, remembering to trust Him and depend on Him when we can’t depend on the situation…is so very hard at times. Praying this reminder encourages you! We all need to be reminded…

    What a beautiful and true description of the provision and love we have in our Father, especially when we are emotionally and spiritually “fatigued”. It’s the hope that God fills us with, as we trust Him, that brings any joy and peace to our souls. This comes from Romans 15:13 and has been one of many “life lines” I cling to during times of pain and suffering. Thanks for your wise and inspirational words!

    • says

      I’m so glad you shared Romans 15:13 Janet. May His word continue to fill your heart, mind and soul with love and strength and encouragement. And may His spirit continue to illuminate your path and guide your days. I love you so much, dear friend. Your faith is a true inspiration.

    Such beautiful, inspiring and well-timed words. Thank you for sharing this with us all! You have truly been a blessing to me today.
    Visiting from SITS and so glad I did.
    Have a fantastic week!

      Yes Holly, I agree. With heavy hearts we cling to our children, and imagine the worst… just terrifying and horrifying to even try to understand what they are going through. Thanks so much for stopping by and reading. So grateful.
